Zak Gives a BIG Smile for the Limited Ingredients and a Higher Nutritional products
from Nutrisca Freeze Dried dinner bites!

Just as Hemmingway chose his words with the utmost care and thought, DOGWELL has introduced a better edited RAW Freeze Dried dinner.

They had me at Gluten Free, as my nutritional guru Lauren Kaufman www.secondnatureeats.com has helped me stay away from GLUTEN, Corn Wheat and Soy I observe her dietary intelligence for my 17-year-old dog Zachary.

I am glad to see these tenants observed in Nutrisca Freeze Dried Bites. These little nuggets are gloriously grain free and potato free and they pack a huge protein punch! The tests conducted where (a) label comparisons over other leading brands offering freeze-dried patties these puppies are higher in protein, fiber and lower in fat) and (b) the taste: to which my super allergic senior likes the limited ingredients and gobbled up the meaty aroma and didn’t have itchies after dinner.

My final vote is a big paws up! I recommend you try a small bag as a treat before you integrate into your dog’s diet. Doggie Dieters - if your pup is fighting the pudge due to inactivity – lower the amount of food and rehydrate bites – the back of the bag gives you feeding guidelines that you can play with and double check with your vet or mine if you live in NY or the Hamptons– Dr Cindy Bressler drcindybressler@gmail.com.

If your pup sticks his head too far in the food, bowl to like the gravy from the rehydrated bites – don’t forget to give a quick puppy facial with your FUR cleanser.

Traveling with our pets for the holidays is a burden of  L O V E and the extra work ensures that you have your furperson or peeps to celebrate all the seasons joys with you and your family.

“Safety starts on the way to the airport. To ensure ultimate safety, comfort and convenience for two and four-legged passengers, be sure to plan, pack and follow the rules”, said Pet Safety Lady aka Christina Selter 

During a recent demo Christina and her pack rolled into town with a great program for the Pup Set and she is pictured below using a Sturdi Products bag to keep her traveling crew well protected.

FUR FACTS: Nearly 2.9 million passengers will pass through LAX from Friday December 17 through January 2nd 2011 and some of those nearly 3 million passengers will have pets.

The number #1 tip is to : BE EARLY and I might add be CALM so that your fluffy people don't pick up on your aniexty.  Maybe throw a little Bachs Remedy in your tea and rub on the gums of your pets for extra tranquility in the airport.
More FUR FACTS from Christina SelterFor Pet Air Travel Safety Tips (PATST):

Fees (average is 100.00)
Cabin or cargo: A pet under 20lb,s, which includes the carrier and can go in cabin, under your seat. 
Larger pets travel as cargo. Lock your carrier and keep ID on carrier.

Security: Pet Pat Down TSA style may be required for some pets.
Your carrier goes through the x-ray machine but your pet is removed from its carrier & walks with you.
Airports are required to have Pet potty areas (LAX has 5).
Packing for pets: Be sure to bring medicines, food, a toy or chew bone, ID tag, collar/harness & leash.

Snub nose pets like a Pug cannot fly as cargo.
Weather safety restrictions apply: Above 85 degrees and below 20, degrees pets don’t fly.

Eat Well, Live Well, DOGSWELLBy J Mikel Sacher, The Canine Curator
Founder and Creator of FUR by J Mikel
It is a no grainer… giving up potatoes isn’t hard to do, especially if you don’t feed yourself. Choosing the best dog food for my dog Zak is a true joy for me.

I have come to learn what works for him, what doesn’t and like to avoid excessive carbohydrates and sugars in his diet. When I read for ingredients, I am as meticulous as I was when I worked with my chemist to create our own proprietary blend for FUR!

So, I felt like doing a happy dance when I met Nutrisca. The folks at DOGSWELL make our Mellow Mutts treats and now they did it again with a grain free wonder! They are the only company to have a Lamb and Chickpea formula and that is what I love. Don’t just take my word for it, vets are valuing the formula too.

This tasty kibble is certified as a low glycemic index dog food and is a great source of protein, folic acid and fiber to give your dog the power to play and have sustained energy of a nutritious meal.

Tell spud to play catch while you fetch some Nutrisca.

Wanna big in on the fun… we are giving away 2 lucky winners a MONTH’S SUPPLY of this amazing food and invite you to find us on facebook so we can keep you in all the news. Load your picture on my fan page FUR BY J MIKEL on facebook. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1245880795#!/pages/Fur-by-J-Mikel/131322860251555

I remember reading a book called Scat, Scat go away little Cat and as an adamant animal lover, I must confess to a little waste distress with cats. L’Odeur from le poo-poo takes on a new EW for me so I want all hip cool kitty lovers to check out this box of joy.

Someone figured out the if you put the opening on the top, the icky litter stays inside the box and doesn’t get kicked around for all to share.

Keep your kitty purring and enjoy the cleaner world and this cat box is hip to the environment and has a reusable litter liner.
